Visibility/Location: This is very easy to find, especially since it's been in the same place for years. They've added a red police light on top of the house so you can see it from the street easier.

Wait Entertainment: These guys are very entertaining. They do a great job of entertaining and scaring people while they wait. Be prepared to have them slide into you as you wait. Also, take a good look at their makeup--very well done!

Length of Event: I overheard a lady saying "it depends on how fast you run" which I thought was funny. It takes about 5 to 10 minutes to get through the house but it's very intense so you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Actor Performance: These are some of the best actors at any haunted house around, especially the charity-run Jaycee houses. They jump out of nowhere and then on to the railings and literally get in your face. Very intense

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Excellent. There aren't any back ups and groups are spaced well.

Appropriate Ages: This depends on the kid, but a mature pre-teen is a good rule of thumb

Costumes / Make-up: The make up is always great at this house and this year is no exception. The costumes are well done and not commercial.

Summary: This is the best Brookfield Jaycees house in years. They've redone the route through the house and all of the rooms are new. There are some rooms which could be improved (poltergiest, Carrie) but there are some very great rooms (butcher, saw, guitar hero). The actors are very intense and in your face. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this house. The prices are reasonable plus they have a $1 off coupon and some special pricing too. I also like going to this house because it's very good but it also is for charity and is built and staffed by non-paid volunteers.

Visibility/Location: If you know where Jaycee park it then you can find it no problem. I had a local in the car so it helped

Wait Entertainment: Very nice. At least 3-4 characters that were very good and it's fun to watch the people coming out as well since the entrance and exit are in front of the line.

Length of Event: 10-15

Actor Performance: FULL FORCE IN YOUR FACE. You can tell how dedicated they are to getting you scared. It was great. Me personally I'm not so much into the yelling at you to RUN and GET OUT OF MY ROOM. I wanted to look at the great room designs and was told to get out!- Sure it was to keep the flow however

Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Never ran into anyone very good flow!

Appropriate Ages: Not a good house for children unless they have nerves of steel

Props / Special FX: Did not see much in Special FX but rooms were well designed

Costumes / Make-up: Very good you can tell they had spent alot of time on getting their costumes to match rooms and the make up jobs were great!

Summary: As always the Brookfield Jaycees have done a great job. It's a smaller house but they pack it full with the scares. Keep up the great work and I will be sure to be back next year
